Advice & Events


The Runners Hub is a shop dedicated to runners. All the staff are runners themselves and love to talk about running. We want to help all our customers to find the right running shoe or running gear for their needs. We are fully integrated into the local running community. Staff are members of clubs in Wirral and North Wales. We sponsor several local races such as the classic Birkenhead Park 5 and Seaside runs which run every month in the summer.
As well as the shop Nigel, the owner, is a Corrective Exercise Specialist (National Association of Sports Medicine), a UK Athletics running coach and trained in the Anatomy in Motion method. He will see runners with long term persistent injuries in the treatment room downstairs in the shop and runs 6 week running movement workshops to coach runners in good movement patterns and run form to ensure they can be injury free and the most efficient runner they can be.

NOW AVAILABLE the online version of the Run True runners movement course available HERE targeting strength and mobility for runners to enhance performance and reduce incidence of injury.

My Border Collie Doesn’t Stretch (Mobility for Runners) by Nigel Crompton available HERE now or in store

This is the story of the journey from injured runner to Corrective Exercise Specialist working within the Anatomy in Motion system, running injury free and helping other runners do the same.

Stretching (static) is not only unhelpful it is bad for you as a runner.

If you are that perpetually injured runner, if you keep getting told that stretching is the answer to everything (spoiler …. It isn’t), if you want to keep running with ease as you get older    …… then this book is for you
